    "Bring up" and the prepositions "at" and "in"

    I am wondering if it is correct to use the preposition "at" and "in" and the following sentences?

    1. She was brought up at a farm.
    2. He was brought up at the coast.
    3. Bob was brought up in a little village.
    4. They were brought up in a rich suburb.

    1. She was brought up at a farm. I'd use "on a farm".
    2. He was brought up at the coast.
    3. Bob was brought up in a little village.
    4. They were brought up in a rich suburb.
    See above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I'd be more likely to say 'on the coast'.
